An Extraordinary Chaplain

Here’s an inspirational and deeply touching story about US Army chaplain and Catholic priest Father Emil Kapaun who received the Medal of Honor for his actions during the Korean conflict.

Fr. Emil’s ministry is a walking testimony to Jesus’ words: “Come, enter the Kingdom. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was sick and you visited me.” Then Jesus will turn to those on His left hand and say, “Depart from me because I was hungry and you did not feed me, I was thirsty and you did not give me to drink, I was sick and you did not visit me.” These will ask Him, “When did we see You hungry, or thirsty or sick and did not come to Your help?” And Jesus will answer them, “Whatever you neglected to do unto one of these least of these, you neglected to do unto Me!”

Chaplains routinely respond to those in need. We are so blessed that they are willing to “walk the walk” where many fear to go. Please keep them in your prayers.
